Our Feedback

Vincent C. Gray, Mayor

Regaining the District’s competitive position in the region [involves] creating a framework that makes sense for local businesses... and puts programs and policies in place to help small, locally-owned businesses.

Yvette Alexander, Ward 7 Councilmember

We are truly moving forward, and Making Ward 7 One. Deanwood Heights is the new destination for improved retail options and expanded development East of the River.

Kwame Brown, Council Chair

[Deanwood Heights] already has significant history and assets... Coupling its assets with the community economic development projects and the Main Streets designation creates a tremendous catalytic domino effect.
